Kid-friendly, Savoury Mince

Let me preface this by saying in most circumstances I am opposed to the photography of mince. I am also opposed to all other vegan mince products purchased over the counter, and opposed to all brands of TVP except one, and opposed to anyone making mince for me to eat – unless they follow this…

Quick vegan ice-cream which scoops like a dream.

What a time to be alive. This is my gift to the people. It feels like the pinnacle of my contribution to veganism. I take full credit for the modification of other vegan ice cream recipes into an incredibly simple, quick, cheap recipe – with no fancy ingredients – that scoops directly from the freezer…

Ultimate Raw Brownies

This is so simple. INGREDIENTS Approximately 100g LSC (blended linseed, sunflower, chia seeds) Cocoa 6 pre-soaked medjool dates (takes 5 minutes) 2 teaspoons of coconut oil A dash of water to make it “doughy” if required INSTRUCTIONS Blend, press into squares, dehydrate.

Raw-ish Banoffee Pie

Banoffe Pie is notoriously rich and sweet so I really suggest berries here to offset the sweetness. The toffee sauce is next level; count on it. This didn’t take that long to make, I probably spent about 20 minutes in the kitchen.  Dates soften in roughly 5 minutes in boiled water.  Biscuit layer: Some LSA…

Raw Sprout Sandwich with Quick Raw Bread

Once I make raw bread – which is incredibly quick to prepare – it lasts for days and then I can throw together beautiful sandwiches on the fly, such as this! Raw bread simply requires you to put half a carrot into a food processor and process it finely, then mix LSA and a dash…

Raw Passionfruit-Macadamia Biscuits With Strawberry & Lavender Spice

This is my first experimentation with lavender. It’s a strong flavour so use sparingly. These cookies are lovely and my 1 year old son loves them too. Don’t forgo the strawberry, that’s the freshness! Note this person being wooed like putty. And THEY’RE PRETTY. BISCUIT INGREDIENTS 1.5 cups coconut 1/2 cup sliced almonds 3 teaspoons…

Sprouts, Hummus & Plum Sauce Bagels

  This idea was stolen from Mamata Organic Bakehouse. Thanks, Mamata! If you’re out and about in Grey Lynn of Auckland, New Zealand you can pop in and buy one. Their bagels are particularly lovely and chewy; it doesn’t sound like much but once you try these you’ll swiftly become addicted. Hummus, heaps and heaps and…

No Refined Sugar No Bake Healthy Hazelnut Afghan Biscuit Cookie Batter Bites

This is one of those “few handful” recipes. It’s really lovely way to enjoy afghan biscuits without all the sugar. Plus they’re gluten free! Definitely kid-friendly – lots of healthy nuts – and they also enjoy collaborating on the build! 70g pack hazelnuts 2 and a half teaspoons cocoa powder 2 big, heaped teaspoons peanut…
